The major oil companies operating in the Gulf of Mexico require that all cargo transit containers be load tested. Integricert performs this task by simulating the actual load using our patented equipment. Load test's can only be accepted by simulating the weight in the container while applying force to the pad eyes. This process is called full integrity load testing. The load applied to the equipment is usually 2 times or 2.5 times the work load limit of the equipment.
We are the home of the IntegriCert tm portable load test unit. Our load test units can load test equipment up to 125,000 lbs. Our portable system can adjust to suit any size basket, box or skid.
We provide load testing in accordance with all applicable industry standards such as:
This unique load testing method provides a full integrity load test of shipping containers, boxes, baskets and skid. Our equipment test more that just the pad eyes. By simulating actual load on the equipment, we can test the strength of the bottom, sides and overall construction integrity of the cargo unit.
During testing, we conduct a visual inspection and an inspection of all material welds that are in critical load areas. A Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) of all critical areas is also performed. We provide a certificate of load test and inspection along with NDT results.
